Seeking Victim Information in Stephen Cipkin Investigation

The FBI’s New Orleans Division is seeking the help of anyone who may have been victimized by or have knowledge of sexual abuse of children involving Stephen Andrew Cipkin. Cipkin has been charged with child sexual abuse and other sexual abuse crimes in the U.S. District Court in the Western District of Louisiana.

It is believed that Cipkin’s online child exploitation scheme began in Suffolk County, New York, and in Northwest Louisiana in 2022. Cipkin tutored students in New York and may be familiar by the following online usernames: “sac8635”, “ArabellaC”, “Human no-more”, “numb little bug”, “Swiffer1”, “@onlygoodguy”, and “Ur_Perfect_Daddy”.

If you or a minor dependent has had contact with Cipkin or any of the above-listed usernames or while using Snapchat, Pinterest, YesIChat, Y99, or Instagram between 2020 and 2023, you’re asked to complete this questionnaire. You may also contact FBI New Orleans at or by calling 1-504-816-3000 and leaving a message for the case agent. If you’re aware of anyone else who has had contact with Cipkin, please encourage them to fill out the questionnaire.

The FBI is legally mandated to identify victims of crime in federal investigations. Victims may be eligible for certain services, restitution, and other rights under federal and/or state law. Your responses are voluntary but may be useful in the federal investigation and to identify you as a potential victim. Based on the responses provided, you may be contacted by the FBI and asked to provide additional information. Victim identities are private, and case-related information is confidential.
